Kurotel – Longevity Medical Center and Spa medical director and co-owner, Mariela Silveira, MD, has been invited to speak about the Center’s innovative approach to Brain Health at the 2016 New York Times Travel Show, taking place Jan. 8 – 10 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. For the first time this year, The New York Times is creating a feature totally devoted to Wellness Travel, with the assistance of wellness travel journalist and consultant Anne Dimon, CEO of Travel to Wellness. Recently recognized for its excellence in wellness travel, Kurotel is honored to represent South America at the Show.
“We’ve been recently through a period considered the “golden decade of the brain” when it comes to understanding the mind,” says Dr Silveira, brain wellness expert and speaker at the show. “We’ve learned about the lifestyle influence on the brain and its ability to change over the years – which sounds impossible. With the increase of older generations, memory has become the subject of many studies. Neuroscience has helped us learn more about the brain in the past 20 years than we have ever known,” ends Dr Silveira. She will speak on January 9th and 10th at 1pm, at Best Life Stage.
In addition to the speaking engagement, Kurotel will host a table in the Wellness Discovery Path, answering questions about brain health with suggestions on how to keep the good health of one’s memory. The Center is also running a contest offering show attendees a chance to win a 5-night wellness retreat at the Center in Brazil. More info about the contest can be found at www.TraveltoWellness.com/Kurotel-contest. Kurotel will be at the booth 1133 on the Wellness Discovery Path.
